proverb

sorry, i can´t translate that appropriately.
(edit -- but Arnden was so kind to send the proper translation:
"When the sun (of culture) is low, even dwarves will cast long shadows".
There you go! isn´t that just great? thanks Arnden!!)

it´s probably by Karl Kraus, but i saw it first in a Wagenbach Verlag book announcement flyer (ok, that´s not the right expression, where´s my English for Booksellers book??). anyway, i pointed it out to my sister and look what she did for me!
love it :-)

  1. You have a modified version of the quote... "Wenn die Sonne der Kultur tief steht, werfen selbst Zwerge lange Schatten" (When the sun of culture is low, even dwarves will cast long shadows), which is a famous German aphorism which is contributed to Karl Kraus.
